This Week in Soccer

It's going to be quite a ride this week as WC Qualifying continues at a fever pitch and the MLS season begins.

The action will start off the field tomorrow, however, as the MetroStars sit down with the NJSEA in what Metro GM Nick Sackiewicz says will hopefully be the "last negotiation" for the Harrison, NJ, stadium project. A report today in the Star-Ledger has Hudson County ready to sell bonds to fund the purchase and cleanup of the stadium site.

On the field, the US teams needs to rebound after getting smacked by Mexico. The Nats take on Guatemala in Birmingham, AL (espn2, 8pm). Also in CONCACAF, Mexico will be in Panama (Telemundo, 8pm), and Trinidad will play at Costa Rica.

Fox Soccer Channel will show three European WC Qualifiers on Wednesday:
England-Azerbaijan live at 1:30pm
Serbia/Montenegro-Spain delayed at 4pm
Israel -France delayed at 6pm

MLS' 10th season kicks off this Saturday, April 2nd, with all 12 teams taking part. Fox Soccer Channel has an hour-long preview show on Friday April 1 at 8pm.

DC United @ Chivas USA - 3pm, ABC
Real Salt Lake @ MetroStars - 7pm, MSG
